‘Best news since we won the Champions League’ These Chelsea fans react to Sarri’s tactical change during Chelsea vs Southampton

Some Chelsea fans were over the moon with the tactical change that Maurizio Sarri made during Chelsea vs Southampton this evening.

Chelsea certainly haven’t delivered the commanding performance that fans would have expected in the first half of their clash against 17th placed Southampton. The Blues created chances but there was a lack of killer instinct on show, this could come back to bite Sarri’s men when they reflect on the game.

Chelsea were hit with an injury to Willian in the first half and the Brazilian was replaced by talented youngster Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the 37th minute of the clash.

Willian has faced criticism this season for his uninspiring performances and although suffering an injury is unfortunate, the chance it gives Ruben Loftus-Cheek to shine could be the key to victory against the Saints tonight.

Check out reaction to Willian’s substitution below:

The Blues will need to seriously improve in the second half.

Ralph Hasenhuttl has improved the Saints since he was appointed manager but Sarri’s fourth placed Chelsea side should be performing much better against a side that are seen as relegation candidates.
